Description 

This trad route sits left and on the upper ledge system of the Bear's Den. From below, the offwidth/chimney crack looks less than appealing, but a #4 Camalot protects the opening move, and progressively smaller cams take one to the bolted anchor.

The crux is likely getting started on this slightly overhanging and intimidating wide crack. We climbed it often with one tool and hand jams in the middle section.

Location 

The start is an obvious wide crack that starts above a snowy ledge. A few bouldery moves takes one to a higher ledge where the opening crux moves start getting off the deck.

Protection 

Cams from #4 Camalot to 0.3 size.
